Life and Whim Scavenger Hunt

Join us for the inaugural "Traverse the City" scavenger hunt, a FREE family-friendly affair that will be an exciting way to explore Traverse City in a new way.

Life and Whim and The Little Fleet are teaming up to plan a hunt that will enable friends and family - especially kids - to get outside, meet new people and learn some interesting historical facts about Traverse City.

Complete the scavenger hunt at any time between 1-4 p.m. (we expect it to take approximately 1 hour). After the hunt, meet for drink specials at the after-party at The Little Fleet until 4 p.m. (it's best to start the hunt early so there's time to enjoy the after-party)!

Visit www.lifeandwhim.com/scavengerhunt to register for the event. Once you've registered, you'll receive updates about the event and the scavenger hunt clues will be emailed to you at 11 a.m. on the morning of the event.
